The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast E32: Elite Eight Recap and Coaching Carousel Update

We’re down to just four teams, and on the newest episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, Aaron and Nick Coffey talk about all the madness in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8. Among the topics the guys discuss:

— A recap of the Kansas-Duke thriller. Aaron explains why it was a good day for Bill Self, and Nick asks how much blame does Coach K get with Marvin Bagley barely touching the ball?

— Is the “one and done” era dead in college basketball, with all the top freshmen knocked out of the tournament?

— Why Villanova winning ugly was a good sign for Jay Wright, and why we’re still not sure which Michigan club we’ll get in San Antonio.

—  A deep dive on Loyola-Chicago: Has America officially gotten too much Sister Jean?

— A quick reflection back on Kentucky’s loss to Kansas State? Did Kentucky play the worst possible game at the worst possible and can you blame John Calipari at all for the loss?

— And finally, a quick dip around the coaching carousel. Aaron explains why Dan Hurley is the perfect hire for UConn and Nick breaks down the timeline where he expects Chris Mack to be named Louisville’s next head coach.

    Blame Calipari? Sure. Does he know his players’ FT%? Sure. Did he know if they practiced them or not? Sure. Could he see deficiencies in their FT form? Sure. Could he have helped them correct it? Sure. Could he hold them accountable for basketball basics? Sure. Did he do any of this? Not so sure.

    My biggest thing was since the Refs and KS was playing Hack a Shaq, couldn’t Knox just post up, i mean the last 4 minutes of the game were all against smaller guys. So why even put PJ through all of this. I don’t understand why anyone on the coaching staff would not to think to put ANYBODY else but PJ in that position to fail. I am not saying that I am coach but just using common sense, if you run the same play 20x and its only working 40% of the time, why keep doing it and expecting different results?
